Stay With Us

Book your place in the Elsamere story and help us to conserve a little more of this wonderful environment. We are an exclusive resort with just 10 double rooms, all ensuite with private verandahs facing the lake. Our team of staff are experts in the wildlife around us and the resort team will ensure you are well looked after throughout your stay.

Elsamere was not designed as a resort, it was created as a home and by staying here you will feel like part of the family. Learn about the history of it’s wildlife story, as well as plans for it’s future. You can be as active or inactive as you like. Enjoy afternoon tea prepared on the lawn by our chef as you watch the local wildlife wander across the garden. Take a trip across the lake spotting birds with our expert guides in one of the most densely populated bird habitats. Or book a safari trip to head out and explore the areas around Elsamere.

“Elsamere is a truly wonderful experience. Our stay in its cozy rooms with a view of the lake and sounds of birds chirping was really relaxing and refreshing. The meals were delicious and most of all Elsamere staff are extremely warm and ensure guests feel at home. Asante sana.”
